Picking up on this thread from Sept.

Tony, you'd confirmed what I'd thought about Git causing bloat.

What I wonder about though is that Git seems to be gaining ground in the Tech Comm industry.

I'm sure it's great for API/SDK documents where there's heavy text and few images or other binary files.

Are we just stuck with it as is, if we have lots of binary files?

Thanks,

Steve

Git isnât recommended for binary files because its benefit of storing changes only is negated, and bloats the repo for all users. Most FM and Word shops I know use SVN or VSS.
